Veer Union, The - Sledge Hammer Lyrics




I hit a wall, I never felt so low, so low
Like a waterfall, my tears dropped to the floor, the floor
They left a swimming pool of salted crimes, crimes
Oh, what could I do to change your mind?
Nothing

I'm bracing for the pain and I am letting go
I'm using all my strength to get out of this hole

I hit a wall, I thought that I would hurt myself
Oh I was sure, your words would leave me unconscious
And on the floor I'd be lying cold, lifeless
But I hit a wall, I hit a wall, watch it fall
You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer
You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer

Yeah I hit a wall, I prayed that I would make it through, make it through
I can survive a life that's without you, that's without you, yeah
And I will rise up from the ashes now, the ashes now
Oh, the sparrow flies with just the crumbs of loving spilled, yeah

I was bracing for the pain and then I let it go
I gathered all my strength and I found myself whole

I hit a wall, I thought that I would hurt myself
Oh I was sure, your words would leave me unconscious
And on the floor I'd be lying cold, lifeless
But I hit a wall, I hit a wall, watch it fall
You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer
You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer
You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer
You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer

Veer Union, The Sledge Hammer Comments
  1. Oliver Smit

    My obsession with this song is unhealthy but idc

    TheVeerUnion

    Oliver Smit nice!!!!

  2. Cryptyknyk

    This is a cover? No way. It sounds like a Veer Union song, legit. Damn, talk about making it yours.

  3. Adam Sommer

    Lol its 2019. No one buys music anymore. They convert it to mp3 file

  4. Stan Sinitsky

    Original song sounded to me a bit breaking benjamin-ish, I mean harmonies and the melody. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thought that it would sound killer as a metal song. Thank for such a great cover, guys!

    TheVeerUnion

    Stan Sinitsky thanks so much for your great comment!!

  5. Mohamad Arab

    Cover= love
    Original = block
    Lol 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏❤❤❤❤❤😱😱😱😱😱

  40. David Romo

    Andy Black is that you

  41. Roger Beutler

    One of the most underfunded and underrated bands of all time. Seen them numerous times. Great music and great people.

    TheVeerUnion

    thanks so much Roger, thats very kind of you

    Roger Beutler

    @TheVeerUnion the last time we saw you was at Liquid Joe's in Salt Lake. I remember you guys were discounting your merch because you had trouble with your van. Took a picture of my daughter and wife with you. That's what I like about you, Adelitas Way, Red; you never forget your fans. Always willing to take a little time to socialize. My best to you and hope you get near Vegas again.

  42. Remiphilim

    the veer union <3 _ \m/

  43. El Boberto

    I wanted a heavy rock/metal version of this for so long!!!

    TheVeerUnion

    Perfect!

  44. Trojan 4 ever!

    Fuck Rihanna! Rihanna who??? This is awesome 🤘🤘

  45. Seth Wallace

    Man, you guys never cease to amaze me! You’re just about tied with Red for my all-time favorite band. In fact, late last year when you guys were doing a tour with them, I went to see you live in Durham, North Carolina. Sadly there was some problem with the venue and no one was able to perform, but I hope I’ll have another chance sometime in the future. Like a woven tapestry of melodious acoustics, you somehow turn music into a true art form — something that seems to be increasingly rare these days

    Roger Beutler

    @Seth Wallace TFK is definitely on my bucket list along with Theory Of A Deadman. Have a good one!

    Seth Wallace

    Roger Beutler you too man :D

    TheVeerUnion

    Thanks seth! We remember, motorco! We will def be back in your neck of the woods before you know it!

    Seth Wallace

    TheVeerUnion you guys actually replied :D Thanks!! Rock on 🤘

    Josh Black

    @TheVeerUnion I hope you come back to Sacramento. It's been a long time since I've seen you all play here.

  46. Sean Wilson

    2:04 but.... wasn't "just the crumbs of loving's failure?" O_o

  47. sarah kamal

    Hell yes!!!!!!🤘🏽🤘🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

    TheVeerUnion

    sarah kamal 🤘🏻

  48. sarah kamal

    His voice is just incredible. He’s so awesome. Can’t get enough.

    TheVeerUnion

    sarah kamal thanks so much!!

  49. Let It Rain 777

    I really dig it 🔥🔥😈

    TheVeerUnion

    thanks!!

  50. vaughn gonsalves

    Been listening to this band since I was like 18-19 years old. I'm now 30. Time flies this band has never disappointed me. 🔥

    Hollow Knight

    I started listening to them at 16..im 26 now..youre right, after high school time flies..its strange that in high school i wanted time to be faster and be done with school..now i wish time would slow down and that i was back in school

    TheVeerUnion

    Thanks so much for sticking with us!!

  51. Sean Wilson

    CAN YOU GUYS MAKE A STAR TREK MUSIC VIDEO WITH THIS or would you get slapped with a copyright lawsuit?

  52. Sean Wilson

    ho....ly.... CRAP! i never took them for being a fan of Rihanna O_O AWESOME, BRUV! >:-)

    TheVeerUnion

    Sean Wilson sure are!

    Sean Wilson

    @TheVeerUnion would you ever consider a Nonpoint cover? perhaps Chaos and Earthquakes?

  53. Frankenvergil

    One of the best bands in the world, thank you for so much music!

    TheVeerUnion

    Wow, thanks so much!

  54. Michael Atkinson

    Was kind of hoping this was a Peter Gabriel cover, but it's still good!

    TheVeerUnion

    thanks !!

  55. ProfessorCreepyPasta

    Sounds great! I hope you guys make more original music soon though.

    TheVeerUnion

    working on it!

  56. at s

    Wow, you guys made the song your own.
    Truly a masterful take on the song 🔥

    TheVeerUnion

    thank you!

  57. White Lightning

    Nice song guys 🤙🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 Nice song!

    TheVeerUnion

  58. Niroz41

    You all have quickly become one of my favorites.

    TheVeerUnion

    Thank you so much Angelica

  59. SAIF THE EDGE

    it's one of them times when the cover is better than the original lol.

    SAIF THE EDGE

    @George Clark it's ok you ain't educated enough Lmfao the original is garbage and her voice is so ugly lol.

    Sean Wilson

    @George Clark theeeeeeeeeeen...... why'd you come here then? -__-

    TheVeerUnion

    thank you!

    TheVeerUnion

    SAIF THE EDGE that’s very kind of you!

    Daniel Warren

    Crispin please come to Knoxville Tennessee love this version. My son is 4 and he loves this song

  60. Helvow

    *Triple H likes this song*

    Sean Wilson

    but would he make it his *Entrance* Theme? (i wish he still wrestled though.)
    also, i wish Veer Union would collab with Rihanna and sing a duet. ;-)

    Sean Wilson

    would Rihanna approve if these guys were to get their cover as part of a Star Trek film as well? (and maybe... get it used in the movie and not just the end goddamn CREDITS!) >:-(

  61. Khurram Qureshi

    always doing a great job

  62. Robinho Star

    the best musical group i have ever seen

    TheVeerUnion

    Thanks so much Robinho!

  63. Black RockN 31

    🤘🏿🔥🔥🤘🏿

    TheVeerUnion

    thanks so much!

  64. Logan Perry

    Was skeptical of this cover but you guys made it your own and knocked it outta the park!

    TheVeerUnion

    thanks logan!

  65. Julia M

    From reading some comments I've learned that this was a Rihanna song first.
    Not in my world. 👍👍

    TheVeerUnion

    Thank you!

    Josh Black

    Peter Gabriel much. Either way TVU is one of the best ever. They did a cover of Umbrella 10 years ago that kicks ass.

  66. mc2archsinm

    🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻Just what I needed to get me through the work day!!!!! Keep 'em coming guys!!!! 👍🏻👍🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻#TVU

  67. Bobby Momementeller

    Goddamn this is beautiful

    White Lightning

    Obviously your not...YOUR A HYPOCRITE! Their is a difference sir.

    Bobby Momementeller

    White Lightning I just told you the difference. You saying I’m not means everything about YOU., no more man made words from you.,you are serving your purpose.

    White Lightning

    Yeah no purpose at all sir. Your just a HYPOCRITE sir you didn’t show nor tell me the difference. But nice try

    Bobby Momementeller

    White Lightning ok keyboard Satan. I’m sorry you are so miserable and lost from God you think your frail ignorant matter to me or God. But I can see you are already burning in hell in your own man made mind. Can’t even enjoy music you are so lost. Message again and you will be reported for harassment. No one cares what you think.

  68. Алексей Федоров

    Awesome! Just Awesome!

    TheVeerUnion

    Thanks!!

  69. Christopher Coatney

    Dudes, I can tell you a pop song that you guys could cover, and I know you guys could absolutely kill it. It's Katy Perry- Who am I living for. Please go check it out, and see if you guys can get the rights to do a cover version. It's definitely a prime candidate for a pop song that needs to be turned into a rock song. Crispin could definitely nail the vocals.

    Christopher Coatney

    @TheVeerUnion Trust me. Just check it out. I think you'll agree, especially when you hear the chorus. I've actually heard some pretty rad instrumental covers of it turning it into a metal song, so I know that it can be done.

    Christopher Coatney

    @TheVeerUnion Just as an example, here is a link of a male performing the vocals very well.

    https://youtu.be/WuZ2jTEI_lc

    Christopher Coatney

    @TheVeerUnion For further evidence to my point. Here is a metal cover of the song. While not a great rendition of it, I feel it illustrates that it can be done. I believe with how talented you guys are that your version would be absolutely fantastic.

  74. Mostafa Aiman

    I'm in love with his voice
    Reminde me Andy vocalist bvb

    Greg Brown

    Yuck. Bvb is fucking garbage!

  75. Dan Simmons

    Was a little skeptical about you guys doing a Rhianna cover, but this REALLY works. Not being someone who follows her music, I was not terribly familiar with this particular song. Had I not known it was a cover, I could have easily believed that this was original TVU work. Very well done, guys. So proud to call you all my friends. Look forward to seeing you in KC the next time around...🤘

    Patrick Roberts

    This isn't the first time they covered a Rhianna song. They covered Umbrella several years ago.

    Dan Simmons

    Yeah, I was aware of that. Not sure that they went into that cover with the same level of seriousness that they did with "Sledgehammer"...

    Patrick Roberts

    That's a good point. Definitely not as heavy as the covers they have been doing recently.

    TheVeerUnion

    thanks so much Dan!! Looking forward to seeing you on the next tour!!

  76. Enrico de Beer
